When you are working in the highly demanding world of food service, you need to be able to move things around easily. After a busy shift, there’s always lots of cleaning. And the only way to be able to clean effectively is to move your big cooking equipment out of the way so that the place will be spick and span in time for the next service.
If you are looking to move any industrial equipment easily and without any damage or injury, you can’t just push them around with bare hands. Instead, you have to move these with the help of casters. These are wheels designed to support heavy objects. And for heavy kitchen equipment that can weigh up to 2,000 pounds, you should consider having heavy duty casters installed to help move them around your kitchen. To give you a better idea, here are examples of kitchen equipment that can be handled more easily with casters:
For any restaurant, the electric range is always the heart of the kitchen. Because of constant use, all kinds of sauces and spilled ingredients tend to accumulate around the stove after an entire day of cooking. And sweeping all this up would be a lot easier when the range can be rolled in and out of place.
Commercial Floor Fryers
Especially in fast food restaurants and diners, floor fryers are necessary if you want to serve up some freshly made fries, fried chicken, and doughnuts. After prolonged use, you will notice a lot of grease stains all over the equipment that will need to be cleaned thoroughly to ensure your food is both safe and appetizing every single day.
Commercial Convection Ovens
Commercial convection ovens are very useful in making both savory dishes and desserts. And because yours gets utilized a lot, it needs to be cleaned thoroughly inside and out after each every day. You will also need to be able to clean the sides of the oven where batter, sauces and other ingredients may have spilled or splattered. This is where a complete set of heavy duty casters will come in handy.
Consider using casters on this equipment in your professional kitchen. Doing so will help you avoid injury or damage while your equipment is being cleaned or undergoing repair. You may not realize it, but these small casters do more than just make your life easier. They can help you save money too.
